I've been reading up on them a bit. The qualifications are pretty general. That bolded part looks like it’s the catch. Good cause is open to interpretation, do I have to be a victim of a violent crime to have good cause, or is good cause the desire to be prepared to responsibly defend myself should I be an attempted victim of a violent crime? From this map it looks like the county I live in now (Fresno) is hard but not impossible, I didn’t realize that it's supposed to be so easy in so much of the state though. So anyways anyone here have any experiance?
